This past week my sister and favorite brother-in-law paid us a visit from Ohio. It was so great to see them and have all of the family back together, with the exception of my brother serving a mission. Last Saturday we spent the whole day together doing "family" things. We are all big Food Network fans and enjoy watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. In one episode Mike's Big Breakfast, a little resturant in Phoenix, was featured. So we decided to brace the heat and hour wait to see what all the rave was about. It ended up being quite worth the wait. MMM.. homemade maple syrup, doesn't get much better than that. Plus with the Phoenix Farmers Market just across the street, waiting turned out to be quite entertaining, and Dave and I came home with some great cinamonroll bread and a free Jamba Juice bag.

Waiting to be seated.

It was hot, but well worth the wait.

Yumm. Pancakes and Waffles.

The plan for the rest of the day was to float down the Salt River. After viewing the line at the loading station we opted for the pool in my parents' backyard. Which turned out to be an excellent choice. Swimming was followed by a trip to the movies to see Walle and a BBQ with homemade ice cream at my parents. We all had a great time and decided that even thought the 4th of July was a week away today might have well have been the 4th.
